Getting My Hygge On ....

Thursday, 8 December 2016

Basil getting his hygge on my :

.... well sort of. And you certainly wouldn't expect to be getting your hygge on in M&Co would you now? I only found out recently that I had a store near the swimming pool where my boys have their lessons and this came about as a result of Ben forgetting to tell me that he needed to bring a pair of pyjamas for his swim lesson. You know that lesson where you have to throw yourself in "fully clothed" in your pyjamas and swim a few lengths? Yep that one. So given that we had twenty minutes in which to locate a pair of pjs, we found ourselves in M&Co and thankfully, it came up trumps.

Anyway, I digress and I've found a few bits from M&Co to get that hygge vibe going. You've all heard about hygge? In a nutshell, it's about creating a nice warm fuzzy atmosphere and enjoying the simple good things in life. And it's a concept created by the Danes who are deemed the happiest people around. Sounds good to me!

So what do we have.

1. Pixel Cushion. 

I love the pixelated pattern. Infact my boys have declared this super cool as it actually looks like Minecraft Coal Ore and are now fighting over it to have in their room. Anyway cushions make sofas comfy. Cushions are what boys like to jump on. Everyone's happy so that's very hygge! 

2. Slate Picture Frame.

I like the wood frame against the slate. So I'm thinking a picture of your loved ones in there would  give you that nice warm fuzzy feeling and make you happy.  Hygge!

3. Wolf Onesie.

I think the small boy is due a new onesie as his last one was giving him a wedgie. I actually think he would be comfy and warm (and look kind of cute) in this so that would make him (and me) happy. Hygge!

4. Faux Fur Throw.

This is going over my little leather sofa in my family room. The sofa which the boys are slowly destroying by climbing and jumping all over despite my passionate protests. It's cosy, it's furry, it's protective and I'm happy(er). And look how much Basil loves it. Hygge!

5. Christmas Tree Decoration.

I just like this Christmas decoration. It's kind of simple and rustic and pared back. It works well with my existing decorations which makes me happy. Hygge!

So are you guys getting your hygge on out there? To be honest, I have no idea really what hygge is about and I skim read an article in the Guardian about it and how the Danish are so happy about their way of life so I guess it's whatever makes you happy. So go forth and hygge!

  1. I read a book on Hygge and loved it! I have a throw very similar to the one you've picked....need to get some more candles though ;) Jane x

    1. Yes, the candles thing - I can't decide what fragrance I want to create that Christmas feel at the moment. I don't think I can do the orange spice and stuff, so I think it's going to be all evergreens and fir instead :)

  2. Cats are pretty good ambassadors of hygge. Wherever they are, they seem comfortable and warm (for the most part).

    1. I think cats invented hygge and not the Danes!

  3. Love the concept of hygge, i'm trying to bring it into my home :) these items are perfect!

  4. New to me this hygge concept, it appears its something else I need to buy into. The throw is gorgeous.
